Geopolitical order set to be tested in 2017
03 Apr 2017 Jane's Editorial Staff
Jane's identifies the trends and events to watch as liberal democracy gives way to increasingly securitised policies.
- Global security is likely to worsen in 2017 as disruptive long-term trends converge in a challenge to the post-Cold War geopolitical order.
- The re-ordering of the global balance of power will accelerate in 2017 as China and Russia test the new US presidential administration and Europe remains distracted by the UK's departure from the EU, populist politics, terrorism, and threats to its eastern borders.
- Volatility marked geopolitical developments in 2016 and will become a future commonplace, with the hegemony of the United States under threat and the pace of technological change challenging historical security assumptions.
